A THRESH biography: Consisting of Jeff Schronce on the git-tar, Scott Snyder whumpin' the skins and Duffy Williams thumpin' the sub, THRESH is a hodge-podge of seventies art-rock, modern bomb-blast grind, and, every once in a while, a bit-o-blues. If hodge-podge makes you think of a train wreck dipped in plastic, think again. THRESH is a distinct, aromatic blend. Though not mountain grown, this band combines raw, reckless hardcore rock with smooth, progressive chops and vocal lines for a most d...

|Thresh vs. Billox - Phil Rice ("Overman")|
The gamer known as Thresh made a name for himself in the mid nineties when he handily dominated a national tournament in id Software's Doom2, snatching the grand prize: the Ferrari of one of the game's creators, John Carmack. His domination carried over into the immensely popular follow-up game, Quake.

This one fashioned from tracks selected at random 10 minutes before show time. Not random exactly but picked via some secret intelligence built into a program I wrote. My way of collaborating with God so to speak. I like the way it came out. Hope you do too. The usual crunchy ambient sounds with drone, sound collage and some looping. Includes music of Akoustik Timbre Frekuency, Akumu, Argedco Dosig G Manin, Backyard Ghost, Barbara Schubert, Dupage Symphony Orchestra, Chris Carter, Cisfinitum, Cl...
